TOWNSEND, Del. — A father who died along with his four daughters in a Delaware highway crash was a native of the Philippines and U. S. Navy veteran who settled in New Jersey to raise his family.
Delaware State Police identified the father Sunday as 61-year-old Audie Trinidad of Teaneck, New Jersey.
Police did not identify the minors who died, but news outlets identified the daughters as Kaitlyn, 20; Danna, 17; and Melissa and Allison, 13-year-old twins.
Police say the mother was hospitalized with serious injuries. News outlets identify her as 53-year-old Mary Rose Ballocanag.
The family was returning from a trip to Ocean City, Maryland, Friday on U.S. Route 1 when a pickup truck crossed the median for unknown reasons and hit the minivan and another car.
No charges have been filed.
